Rassbach Museum in Menomonie's Wakanda Park
Join us as local collectors share their treasures with the public. Explore unusual and fascinating items with some of the area's top collectors and learn why collections are so important. The Badger Wheels chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club will show an amazing collection of Studebaker automobiles.
Our silent auction and raffle of simple 'starter-collections' will help fund a pressed penny machine featuring five Dunn County historic landmarks for the Museum Store.
Once again we've got a great selection of silent auction items, including:
Star Wars Memorabilia Collection (Vintage + New)
Packers Package (2022 London Signature Ball, Brett Favre Card, Lambeau Field Turf)
Vintage Comic Book Collection
Pez Dispenser Collection

Visitors to Collectors Day may bid on these the day of the event.
